Who says that 'salvation' and 'being saved' are unfamiliar concepts in contemporary culture? Yesterday outside Oxford railway station I snapped these two posters.
Maybe they are concepts which are in more common use than we think and somehow we need to re-invest them with Gospel significance?
Incidentally, I was in Oxford to attend the open day introducing the new Pioneer Mission Leadership Training course which Jonny Baker and Church Mission Society have developed. It strikes me as being absolutely spot on in what it promises to deliver in training people for various kinds of pioneer ministry. I think there is much to learn from CMS as we think about equipping the increasing number of people engaging in pioneer mission within Methodism.
